Playing with my f-stop-more shots from the fish room

I have been conversing with a few photo friends, trying to improve my images so I took a couple more shots around the fish room today. Some are better than others, but I am especially pleased at how they show the growing color in the Pyrrhulina spilota, which I recently featured in a species spotlight. They get very nice blue edging to their fins, visible in these shots.

There are also a few pictures, while not the best shots, showcase the suface behavior of the Centromochlus cf. reticulatus, purple oil catfish. They are really pretty outgoing, despite their reputation, and spend a lot of time throughout the water column.

As I mentioned in the last post, I am also quite fond of the Hypoptopoma gulare. They have a very interesting, yet subtle coloration which is reminscent of stone. They have settled in nicely as well.
